Shady Deals by Cindy McDonald

Shady Deals (The Unbridled Series)Book Description:
Hot Romance Shaded in Lies and Murder! 
Kate West and Dr. Holden Reese have put their troubled past behind them and are ready to set a wedding date. There;s only one thing in Holden's way: a powerful drug Lord at Keystone Downs Thoroughbred Race Track has Holden under his thumb, and he's not letting go! 
Kate's family is determined to get to the bottom the of horse drugging ring, and when the West's get too close to the truth the Drug Lord sends them a brutal message that can't be misinterpreted. Now Holden is on the run, and he's dragging Kate with him. 
Can he escape his indiscretions? 
How long can he keep Kate in the dark? 
And how damning will the truth be when it's finally revealed

My Thoughts:
This was a  pretty good romantic suspense book.  Holden and Kate are getting ready for a wedding but Holden has a big secret.  He is not able to break ties with a drug lord who has no problems using violence.  When things turn deadly, Holden takes Kate and runs, with Kate still in the dark!
I liked the author's style of writing.  She does a great job of making the story flow.  My problem with the whole book was not 'knowing' the characters.  I wasn't as invested in them as if (I believe) I had been through everything with them.  I think if you read their other stories and knew the characters better that this book would be AMAZING.  That being said, it was still a good book and there was suspense and hot romance involved.  I rate this a 3/5.  I think it would be better to read the ones earlier in the series first.
Thank you to the author/publisher for the review copy of this book (via Pumpupyourbook).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
